The Diversity Advocates program is a diversity and inclusion learning community equipping faculty, staff and students with diversity-related skills and strategies to use on the job and around our campuses.

By participating in trainings and engaging with colleagues and peers, Diversity Advocates become empowered change-agents. As our eyes and ears on the ground, Diversity Advocates also help us identify diversity and inclusion needs and gaps at UMKC.
